This page is dedicated to the honorable men of the 7th Armored Division during WWII who sacraficed their lives not only for their country but the entire world, and for those "Who Came Home" and have since passed away. I am honored to maintain this page for these heroes.|
Out of the known 1368 deaths of the 7th Armored Division in Europe, we have located approximately 1,151. If you happen to know of any 7th AD not listed, PLEASE contact us. We do not personally ask for transfers, however we are very grateful to all of those who have transferred accounts to us.
From August 1944 until May 1945, the 7th Armored Division was awarded;
Congressional Medal of Honor - 2
Distinguished Service Cross - 9
Silver Star - 351
Bronze Star - 1211
Heroic Service - 888
Meritorious Service - 1047
Purple Hearts - total unknown at this time
You may view Wesley Johnston's website www.7tharmddiv.org for this is where I find valuable information and the history of the 7th Armored Division.
Part of the 7th AD was formed from the "Alaskan Defence Command", which fought in the Aleutians. You will also find a Virtual Cemetery title "Aleutian Islands" which is comprised of the ADC and the 7th Infantry Division who died in the Aleutians.
Unrelated to my quest of the 7th Armored Division, I have placed other virtual cemeteries. These are for the honorable men of the Choctaw, Comanche, Sioux, Meskwaki and Navajo Nations. Until recent years, they have often been ignored and forgotten. These unsung heroes are simply known as Code Talkers.
Please visit Bob and Nancy Cannon's site to view other military medal recipiants and Shane O. for WWII deaths.
I know there are so many, but so many have been forgotten. Please do not let time forget them.
Thank you sincerely
A Son of the 7th...

I was reading your bio and saw here you mentioned the men who were on the Aleutian Islands. I watched a show on the History Channel last night about them. What a hard place to be stationed. The conditions were awful. I will be interested to read aout the men that are included.
